Vascular Center

Interventional Nephrology is a subspecialty practice of Nephrology which focuses on the care and provision of vascular access. Considered a dialysis patient’s lifeline, vascular access requires specialized care and maintenance. In the Vascular Center, Interventional Nephrologists perform a variety of procedures in the diagnosis, repair and treatment of vascular access conditions. These conditions directly impact a patient’s ability to receive their much needed dialysis treatments; hence, interventional nephrology plays a key role in a dialysis patient’s long term health. Diagnostic and treatment procedures include angiograms, angioplasty, fistulagrams, thrombectomy, stent placement and coil placement. Vascular access management often commonly includes the exchange, placement and removal of hemodialysis (HD) catheters. A specialized diagnostic test called vessel mapping is also performed to help surgeons plan for the placement of arteriovenous (AV) access devices.
